It is a distinct honor to welcome you on behalf of the entire IEEE GLOBECOM 2016 team to Washington, DC for 59th annual IEEE Global Communications Conference. IEEE GLOBECOM is one of two flagship conferences of the IEEE Communications Society (ComSoc), and is the largest annual gathering of communications engineering professionals bringing together researchers from academia, industry and governments, technical staff and industry management from all over the world. IEEE GLOBECOM, being held in the capital of the United States in 2016, which marks the 240th year of freedom and independence of this republic, it was most appropriate to select “Freedom through Communications” as the theme of the conference. Indeed, the innovations and contributions of communications engineers and those in related fields have immensely facilitated global connectivity fostering freedom across the world. In recent years, we have witnessed remarkable innovations in the communications field and its merging with computing which have paved the way for new disciplines and development opportunities. This meeting is ideal for discussions, exchange of ideas, and ensuing developments. There are ample opportunities throughout the conference to see the advances in wireless technologies as well as those in wire-line. The symposia, workshops, tutorials, keynote speeches, plenary panel as well as the industry program have carefully been assembled to provide a worthwhile coverage of contemporary issues in this conference.

The SJR is a size-independent prestige indicator that ranks journals by their 'average prestige per article'. It is based on the idea that 'all citations are not created equal'. SJR is a measure of scientific influence of journals that accounts for both the number of citations received by a journal and the importance or prestige of the journals where such citations come from It measures the scientific influence of the average article in a journal, it expresses how central to the global scientific discussion an average article of the journal is.

Citations per document

This indicator counts the number of citations received by documents from a journal and divides them by the total number of documents published in that journal. The chart shows the evolution of the average number of times documents published in a journal in the past two, three and four years have been cited in the current year. The two years line is equivalent to journal impact factor ™ (Thomson Reuters) metric.

Evolution of the number of total citation per document and external citation per document (i.e. journal self-citations removed) received by a journal's published documents during the three previous years. External citations are calculated by subtracting the number of self-citations from the total number of citations received by the journal’s documents.
